I wasn't sure what to expect.
Jan had seen them before and somehow I viewed them with a bit of trepidation. By the end I was pleasantly surprised.
As the theatre filled around us the sea of grey just got bigger and bigger. If it had been up to me, I'd have sold Grecian 2000 rather than ice cream at the interval.
As the show progressed I wondered what all the grannies around me were thinking. They didn't seemed phased by the very strong language, they seemed to enjoy it, assuming they could actually hear it.
Fascinating Aida were not quite what I expected. For some reason I associated them with middle income, middle aged women and based upon our audience they certainly appealed to older women, of which there were lots, but also some men and even some younger folks (but not many). Their material fell into the category of musical satirists and much of it was clever, bawdy, skilful and funny.
If you are offended by bad language then they are not for you otherwise go and see them.
